Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Start of Second Bellwether Trial in Federal C.R. Bard Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits ( alleging injuries due to C.R. Bard’s Avaulta line of pelvic mesh devices continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation currently underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the second bellwether trial in that proceeding began on August 19th, and involves a claim filed by a North Carolina woman who was implanted with the Avaulta Solo Anterior Synthetic Support system to treat pelvic organ prolapse. Her lawsuit alleges that the Avaulta Solo device caused serious vaginal mesh complications that have resulted in permanent injury, physical deformity, the need for additional corrective procedures, and other damages. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

“Like all bellwether trials, the outcome may provide valuable insight into how juries could rule in similar vaginal mesh lawsuits. Our Firm looks forward to its conclusion, as we are representing hundreds of women whose alleged injuries echo those described by this Plaintiff,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner Jeffrey S. Grand, is a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal C.R. Bard litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to offer free transvaginal mesh lawsuit evaluations to women who allegedly suffered serious injuries following implantation of devices manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc., as well as American Medical Systems, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to a report from, court documents indicate that C.R. Bard has been named in more than 5,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits, most of which are pending in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in West Virginia. The proceeding’s first bellwether trial concluded on August 15th, with the jury awarding $2 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who was implanted with the Avaulta Plus pelvic mesh device. Her transvaginal mesh lawsuit accused company officials of knowingly using a plastic resin in that product that was unfit for permanent implantation in humans. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00195, U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia (Charleston))

The case presently at trial in the federal litigation marks the third transvaginal mesh lawsuit involving C.R. Bard to go before a jury. Last July, the company was ordered to pay $3.6 million of a $.5.5 million judgment after a California Superior Court jury determined that C.R. Bard was partly responsible for vaginal mesh complications suffered by another Avaulta Plus recipient. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California (Bakersfield))

The C.R. Bard litigation is just one of several pending in the Southern District of West Virginia for vaginal mesh lawsuits. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for the following federal litigations: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; and In re: Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327.
